Had the privilege and opportunity to fish a piece of the West Nueces River. Myself and Rick aka Catyakker met up with Leo (Gar 1970) and his wife Pot licker (Yesenia). I along with Rick fished a section of the river that is in Leo's and Yesenia's back yard. The bite was very good and the water was crystal clear. We caught a bunch of very nice Redear and Bluegill. Most of them were well over a half pound and in the 9" range. Several nice bass in the 2 to 3 pound range were also caught. We also caught two fish that will be submitted for water body records. A .59 Lb Bluegill caught by Rick on the flyrod using a wacky worm, and a 10" Redear caught by myself using ultralight tackle with live worms. (Will be posting a report on "April's Record Fest" next week!) All fish were released to fight again! We were also shown the jig arsenal that both Leo and Yesenia have. Yesenia also prepared a FANTASTIC lunch of enchiladas,rice,and beans,along with ice cold sweet tea. Meeting friends and fishing in God's Country! It just don't get any better! fish

Wow...the "Lunch" itself was well worth the drive. We didn't need to eat again until supper the next day. Fantastic vittles, and the fishing, oh my, the fishing was beyond description. We watched BIG Bass and all flavors of sunfish, just swimming around waiting for anything we had to offer. Great folks live in that part of the country and Pot licker and and Gar1970 are among the best. Again thanks to Banker and our Hosts for all the great memories. soldier

Great post and some very nice fish. Good job guys! rockon



Side Note: The Nueces Canyon is a very beautiful place and holds some very good fishing spots. Myself and two of my friends will be making our second three day float and camping trip to the canyon very soon! Will be fishing both the Frio and Nueces Rivers. Chuck: Have you fished the Chalk Bluff area this year? If so how was the fishing? noidea

Thanks Curtis for the reply! cheers I have not fished Calk Bluff yet this year. I have fished the Canyon three times this year and did well all three times. The rivers are in good shape. The area has also gotten some good rain this year. thumb



Side Note: Hope your trip goes well. Stay safe out there! coolio

Thanks Chuck. Will be making camp there again at Chalk Bluff! Met the owner last year and he seems to be a pretty nice guy! The area was pretty clean and we had a good night there. He also told us about some cold springs that run into the river close by Chalk Bluff. Other anglers say you can catch Rainbow Trout year around there! hmmm

I heard the same thing about the Rainbow Trout. There are a couple of cold water springs on the back side and the trout are able to survive year around. I heard that a private organization stocks the trout once a year during the winter. thumb
